. as we said in the rules committee last night, we saw luis gutierrez, and others join up with virginia foxx. we had concern on the floor raised by dan rohrabacher and doc hastings, and lincoln diaz-balart, mr. pierluisi, the former governor, and number of members of republican leadership joining in support of this, and the bottom line, mr. speaker, is that we should do exactly what mr. gutierrez argued both in the rules committee and here on the floor last night. now, i have stood in this well repeatedly saying that i could have done a better job. well, i had the privilege of serving as chairman of the house rules committee, i could have had more open rules. i could have had more free flowing debate. in fact i was criticized as this new majority was attempting to emerge to that majority status, and it was justified in some ways. we were promised, though, as i and others were being criticizeds -- criticized, mr. speaker, that we would have an entire new direction for america. there would be an open, free wheeling debate. well, there is no issue where it is more apparent we should have a
review of the explosion that killed 29 west virginia miners last week makes it clear there are safety problems throughout the coal industry. the president is ordering federal regulators to work closely with state officials to prevent another tragedy underground. >> this isn't just about a single mine. it's about all of our mines. the safety record at the massey upper big branch mine was trouble. and it's clear that while there are many responsible companies, far too many -- far too many mines aren't doing enough to protect their workers' safety. >> now, at the moment, the president is on his way to kennedy space center. he might not get a real warm welcome there. he'll brief nasa workers on his policy on space flight, which includes to much dismay of some people, his decision to cancel a return to the moon. the plan does include building a new space capsule for use at the international space station, and developing a new generation of rockets for future trips to mars. >> i know you're looking at this going, what is wrong with people? well, web fans think this guy is top dog. what does
